Let's say I have: <div loop="1"><div>

Some more info: Tried on Chrome 26 and 28, and Firefox 20.0. All on Windows 7 64bit jQuery 1.9.1

Here's a quick jsFiddle: http://jsfiddle.net/CTDkJ/

That's because loop is treated as a boolean attribute because it's used as such in HTMLMediaElement:
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/DOM/HTMLMediaElement The element constructor is not checked in jQuery when matching the attribute name against predefined boolean ones; changing this method would increase jQuery size and there are not a lot of such boolean attributes.

Anyway, if you use custom attributes without prepending them with data-, it's your responsibility to make sure those names don't conflict with built-in ones, custom attributes are required to be prepended by data- per HTML5 spec.
